Onslaught of 3DS picture leaks continues, now with video

It was big news when a single factory worker apparently snuck away a 3DS unit off the production line and posted a bunch of pictures online, but now that the cat's out of the bag, there are photos popping up everywhere, and even a video.

It may still be the same guy who's hungrier for fame after his initial leak, or perhaps there's an entire army of 3DS snatchers in our midst. It's probably the first one but nevertheless, we'll enjoy the eye candy.

Like before, the new 3DS shots don't show the unit working at all. The only thing that comes on is some sort of boot-up code, but even when the unnknown 3DS burglar pops in a regular DS cartridge, nothing really happens.

So either this 3DS unit has to be pulled off the line early, or it's due to some other facility to actually receive its internal software. So, yeah, it's a paperweight.

But, wanna watch a video of the coolest paperweight in action?

    What I want to know is: if there's a slider for the 3D that you're supposed to use to play 2D games, what happens if you leave it set to 3D to play DS games? Can't wait, the 3DS is definitely a day 1 buy for me!

    Please tell me the Boot-up code is in 3D!!

    Soon it's my time to finally buy a DS!!! at a quarter the price! And play the amazing games I've read amazing reviews about. I am excited to see what the 3DS can do though!

    How funny would it have been if the camera man's face had been caught in the reflection of the 3DS screen?

    3ds has no battery cover and must be played with 3 arms to keep the battery in.

    Totally photoshoped. You can tell by the third arm and the pixels. :P
  • sutrebla15 - January 4, 2011 11:09 p.m.

  • hunterXhunter - January 4, 2011 10:28 p.m.
